Belonging in a Time of Isolation
Feeling alone? Feeling anxious? Feeling like you’re living in a human silo, unable to connect to the other human silos? If so, you’re certainly not alone. These days of shelter-in-place are strange and disquieting days for us all. But God gives us hope and peace in the midst of the uncertainty.
I highly recommend the article “Belonging in a Time of Isolation” by Kelly Kapic, published at the Gospel Coalition’s website. It’s good encouragement for us all.
The pandemic is not just affecting one city or one region; we are experiencing this shared trauma as the entire human race. [. . .] We must courageously resist this isolation. Not by violating the government’s sober instructions, but by learning afresh to cultivate communion with God and neighbor in this surreal season.
